robert lightwood, listening as emma and julian described their love. listening to them, parabatai, speaking of not just love, but romantic love, as michael had once professed his feelings for robert. robert, who had coldly rejected the one person who truly understood him and turned to become a shell of a person, looking to evil to give him strength. robert, who realized that yes, michael would have wanted him to help them–these two bonded souls who just couldn’t help but fall in love. and he couldn’t turn back time to fix what he did, but maybe, this could be a way to show michael that he wasn’t completely lost after all.
“I didn’t know,“ he said. ”I didn’t know you needed me.“ Her voice shook. ”I always need you” (…) He ducked his head down, kissed her cheek.
“I swear on us.” Clary wound her fingers into the sleeve of his T-shirt. “Why us?” “Because there isn’t anything I believe in more.”
“You love each other – anyone can see that, looking at you – that kind
of love that can burn down the world or raise it up in glory.” – Lilith,
City of Fallen Angels about Jace and Clary
Jace, talking to malec: So, who’s more overdramatic out of you two?
*at the same time*
Magnus: Darling, you kissed me at your own wedding. To someone else.
Alec: …you stormed into my wedding by slamming the doors open instead of entering quietly
Magnus: You made me a ‘birthday’ cake with over 400 candles in December. Every day. Because you don’t know what day I was born or how old I am exactly. I don’t even know how you found that many candles!
Alec: Well you were taking a glitter bath last night. I saw you. There was more glitter than water.
Magnus: Well, I’ve got to get glittery somehow. You, however, shot a spider with your bow just last week.
Alec: I kill demons, what did you expect? Besides, I saw you scream when one of your clients was wearing acid washed jeans.
Magnus: You refused to talk to me for a week after I fixed a hole in one of your sweatshirts. It was the size of a small child Alec! You’re lucky I didn’t throw it out.
Alec: You pretended to faint when you first saw me wearing something colourful
Magnus: You brought me a cane for Christmas because, and I quote, ‘you’re overdue for one,’ then walked out when I refused to use it! On Christmas Day! I’m immortal Alec! I don’t need a cane!
Alec: You didn’t talk to me for a week after I refused to wear a sparkly pink crop top on a mission. A mission Magnus! The demons would see me immediately!
Magnus: You tripped over then started crying because you crushed the ‘floor bugs!’ Those aren’t even a thing and you don’t even like bugs Alec!
Alec: You picked out two coffins for us after I mentioned Izzy was cooking dinner for us and then later you came home with a dirty shovel claiming you’d dug the graves!
Magnus: I jumped on your back and you claimed I’d broken it and needed to give you massages for the next month!
Alec: You portaled to the top of Mt Everest when I told you to chill out! Then came back from Antarctica!
Magnus: Well you-
Jace: Alright! I get it! You’re both overdramatic! I regret asking!
